New Additions to the Presence Series

The owners of The Brush and Comb on Tennyson Street were kind enough to extend the length of my show until the end of July, so I thought I would share more images of some of the new work on that is currently on display. The Presence paintings are finished with a layer of handmade paper and varnish. These are smaller paintings meant to be hung in a pair or small group. I am intrigued by pushing the contrast between the geometric and organic in my compositions. The combination of the drips paired with the handmade paper are reminiscent of a forest and the solid strip of color adds a contemporary feel to more traditional subject matter. Viewing these paintings in person is even better than the photograph, so try to stop in before the end of July!

      Thanks! I posted the remaining new paintings today. I plan to photograph the paintings hanging together in their current location. I will post that image soon. They make a nice little group 🙂
